Solar on homes in New Jersey has been increasing in popularity year after year. There are now over 100,000 home solar systems in New Jersey and over time, homeowners will eventually move with the solar panels still attached to the roof. But what happens when you want to move from your house with solar panels or want to purchase a house with solar panels? The most important thing to consider off the bat is that solar panels will generally increase the value of the home.
Home solar systems in NJ are virtually maintenance free. This is because there are no moving parts in a solar array. A solar installer should be using flashings underneath each panel to protect against leaks, they should use panels warrantied for 12-20 years, and strong solar inverters. With the components of a high quality, the risk for failure quite low. However, one piece of maintenance that may be required is the cleaning of the solar panels.
